xvere In for a war which was going to
absorb not merely the energies of mil '
navy and of our urm.v hut the whole '
Yltallty and resouues of the luittou
Knem)' Power Dwlnilllns
In the first place theie Is no quis-
lion that the emm.v's milltar) power Is
dwindling His losses since he started i
on July 15 Hie great offensive which was 1
to finish the war victoriously for him
have been enormous. In these two and
""a half months the Allies have captured
254,000 prisoners on the western front
alone. These men wen- all taken on
the battlefields, and with ver) few excep
tions would be guide one men I doubt
If the whole Herman annual contingent
of recruits today pioduces 350,000 clasiS,
one men. To the prisoners must be
added the lysses in killed and wounded,
and there, at a moderate estimate, would
not be fewer than four limes as many
as the prisoners, say l.oon.noo
So In two and a half months uermany
'has lost on the western front not less
than 1,250,000 men To her annual con
tingent of nineteen-) ear-old boys, she
hai only her recovered wounded and
Ick to add; and as these are not nearly
'aufliclent to make good these losses and
keep her armies up to strength, she lias
therefore had to live on her capital since
July 15. Bhe has had to break up
twenty-one divisions In order to till the
ranks ot the remainder, and at the same
time to reducle the size of her battalions
In thet. remaining divisions; that ts to
ay. she haii had to reduce her military
establishment on the western finnl by
not fewer than 600,000 men.
' Vhll thts ha been ffulnir nn tile
Americans have been pouring into
France. Fiom reports which we have
received, we, may estimate the number
of American soldiers who have com
pleted their training nnd gone to the
front during1 this period of two and a
half months at about 500,000 The
balance of strength has theretote
changed In favor of the Allies to the ex
tent of approximately 1,000,000 men;
and this process which will (ontlnue until
the end of the war, the dlmunltlou of
the enemy's forces. Is the key to what
has been happening recently In France
tnd Belgium.
5 The, Germans, being unable to make
t;ood their losses, have been forced to
try to reduce their commitments When
S"och hurled them back ftom the Marne
to the Alsne, they attempted to shoiteu
their fronts on the Homme and In Flan
dera: but before they could do this In
their own time and In their own way,
they were anticipated and defeated by
,hlr Douglas Halg. They then hoped to
be able to stand for the winter In the
Hlndenburg sjstem, nnd once more they
have been defeated by the skill or the
Allied leadership und by the splendid
fighting or the Allied troops.
The part taken by the Hrltlsh arm) In
this flehtlnc Is the most glorious In its
a :.hni. Mstnrv. Though In strengtli con.

M "V C half of the prisoners taken. The men
'fciwho have done this are those who In the

The 20th Centuiy tendency is to combine the artistic with the
practical, to adapt thc finest creations of old-time artists and
artisans to the exigencies of modern life and modern homes and
here, the Vaji Sciver Store, with its truly marvelous display of
furniture and furnishings offers a service unique and invaluable.
It is, indeed, a fine art fitting up the home harmoniously, with due
regard to comfort and utility, but an art in which we have been
specialists for over 'a generation. And all that we have learned
from precedent and practice is devoted to the service of those who
wisely place their home-furnishing problems in our hands.

November 15, in a Red Cross box,
with an official tag. As thc box
is but 0x4x3 incites it is difficult to
find things small enough; but A.
l'omerantz & Co. have two valuable
suggestions on sale. Thc "Fyne

icquiies no sharpening, and has a
magazine holding six extra finely
pointed leads. But the newest idea
is the Military Ink tab Fountain Pen,

top of thc pen is a chamber holding
a quantity of inktabs, tablets of con
centratcd ink, requiring only to be
dissolved in water to fill the pen.

been opened in England and become
the gathering .place of wits and
poets. Since then thc favor of coffee
has never decreased, nnd it is moic
extensively used in this country than
in any other, proving conclusively
that it is indeed an "intellectual bev

1520 Chestnut Street, they sell the
same coffee, their own particular
Blend, that they have been putting
up for years, in .1-pound packages.
It is a rich, clear coffee, suitable for
breakfast or dinner, and rather than
sacrifice tho quality, has been slight
ly raised in price, but orders for it
continue to pour in.

of the coat are tailored soft, and cut
almost sti night. The lapels, notched
rather high, join the collar at n
sloping angle that is unusually at

with its graceful lines and comfort
able fitting, is a most sensible and
practical model.

than buying good materials and
then having them ruined in tho
kitchen? Coffee-making by the old
process of boiling is rather an un
certain quantity, some cooks never
managing to get it just right, but
often the failure is not due so much
to cookie as to worn-out utensils. At
the House Furnishing Store of J.
Franklin Miller, 1612 Chestnut

colators galore, the newest' of which
are the all-glass Silex percolators.
These come with electric attachments

one can manage it successfully, for

"fool proof."
